The Trip that Changed my Life is a compilation of over 70 travel stories by travellers and writers from all over the world. This book is the result of Project Alpha, a global undertaking pulling together travellers worldwide to write about the one trip that changed their life. The intent was to show the transformative power of travel and to give back to the communities that continue to transform the lives of travellers the world over. The project was crowdfunded on Indiegogo (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-trip-that-changed-my-life-book-for-charity-books#/) with over 180 backers. 3 versions of the book were offered: a 9×12 full color coffee table version, a 6×9 paperback version, and an E-Book version. Though the coffee table version is no longer available, the E-Book and paperback version are now available through Amazon based on a high number of requests. And as originally intended, 100% of the funds collected through the sale of this book will be donated to charity. So, what should you expect to discover from reading this book? Because the writers come from all parts of the world and from various cultures, each story presents a unique perspective on travel and the meaningful impression it makes. Fasten your seat belts as you journey with writers across the Sahara, witness a political coup while volunteering in Africa, conquer Mt. Kilimanjaro, find love on a road trip across America, discover purpose, meet incredible people from all walks of life, and so much more. What are you waiting for? Pick up the book that will inspire you to take your own life-changing trip and change the lives of people everywhere through the charitable giving that this book will provide. Adventure awaits.
